Florida’s Slightly Better Asshole in Chief

Scott’s approval rating breaks down like this: 35 percent approve, 52 percent disapprove. He has a 7 percent approval among black voters and 29 percent among voters ages 35 to 54.
Scott’s approval rating, however, does surpass the Legislature’s. Just 32 percent approve of the job the Republican-controlled House and Senate has performed.
These numbers are part of a Quinnipiac poll that found Scott’s popularity rose slightly. Gov. Rick Scott’s now at 35 percent, up “6 points since May”.
“This is the highest ‘dislike’ seen in any state surveyed by Quinnipiac University this year,” according to the university’s press release. “Voters tend to like their governor, even when they disapprove of the job he or she is doing. Florida voters like President Barack Obama as a person 69 – 18 percent, but disapprove 51 – 44 percent of the job he is doing.”
